Review: Charming by Susie Kaye Lopez

Sometimes love lasts beyond forever.

Sophie was never interested in guys and she think that would change when she got in college. However, she never dreamed that her dream guy would show up in the strangest way possible. A psychic tells her that there is a spirit beside her, and much to Sophie’s shock, the spirit is the guy whose face keep haunting her since she was little. The guy whom Sophie always draws in her sketchbook. The guy who must be the reason why she had never attracted to other guys.

Then the strangest tale comes unfold. In Sophie’s past, she was a girl named Lily and the spirit beside her is her fiancĂ©, Charlie. Sophie’s grandparents were her parents in the past, and Sophie’s best friend, Rylee, was Charlie’s little sister. Sophie starts meeting Charlie, or Charming as she calls him now, in her dreams. But do they have a happy ending ahead? There’s no guarantee that Charming will stay by Sophie’s side forever. Do they meet again in Sophie’s second lifetime, only to be torn apart for the second time?

Charming is a really cute story that will make you smile and giggle along the story. Charlie definitely earns his nickname, and he keeps saying sweet things that make you can’t help but wish for a guy like him. Sophie is a lovely character and I like it that she accepts all the recent things happening around her really well. I like the secondary characters in this book. There is a little plot about Rylee in the story when she finds her own soulmate, and it’s really cute. I find the whole storyline is fairly easy to predict.

I found this book unintentionally and finished it in really short time. I read too much books with twisted plots and conspiracy at that time so it feels nice to read something light, simple, and romantic. I think this book is perfect for Friday night when there have been too many things going on in life, and you need something light to cheer your day. Preferably with the company of a cup of hot chocolate.

“I love you, Sophie.”

“Forever?” I whispered.

“Beyond forever,” he replied. 

I rate this book:  
Four cups of tea. Amazing! Love the book, it’s simply awesome. I love the tea flavor!  A strong recommendation.

There are still 3 ebooks of Charming up for grab! Check it out here if you haven't entered yet! :)


  1. This sounds a lot like The Catastrophic History of You and Me, but TCH wasn't as predictable and had actual depth, and that's not what I'm getting from your review. Still this sounds like something I'm pretty sure I'd enjoy when in the right mood. I'm defintiely adding it to my tbr. Thanks for the great review, Hilda.

    1. I'm glad that my review makes you interested to read this book, Maja! I don't know how my review makes it sounds like The Catastrophic History of You and Me, must be my limited ability to write a review! x( Sorry that I lead you to think that Charming sounds like The Catastrophic History of You and Me, because I think it's really different. This is really the book to read in the right mood! :D

  2. I love YOU beyond forever, Hilda! I never would've found this book on my own, but ever since that awesome interview you did with the author, I've been so excited to read this one -- and it sounds like such a beautiful book! I have the biggest weakness for stories that are sweet and giggle-worthy, so maybe this might be one too! :) It is really nice to be able to read something sweet and light every once in a while between all of those dark books.

    Beautiful review, Hilda! As soon as I stop ogling that cover, I'm going to go research more about this book! :) <3

    1. Aww, Mimi, I LOVE YOU beyond forever too! <3 I did giggle a lot when I read the book! x) It's just really refreshing to read a light book after reading so many conflict and politics and story twists! :)

      Thank you, Mimi! If you ever read this book, I know you're going to love it! <3

  3. Awh, this one sounds sooo cute!! I love simple and romantic books. I, too, sometimes need to get away from all the paranormal and drama. I think if I'm looking for a beautiful, sweet book, I'll definitely check into this book. Thanks so much, Hilda, for introducing this book to me! Lovely review. :)

    1. Thank you so much, Sophia! Simple and romantic books are always fun to read, especially after reading so much drama and love triangle LOL! xD Thanks for visiting, you rock! :)
